    I was on my way home today talking to my wife when I seen some ash knocked down on the side of the road. The county has been taking down a lot of the dead ash on the road side lately. Now mind you I have three years worth of wood and have told my wife countless times I'm done till fall. The property is state owned land so it's destined for the chipper. The conversation went something like this, wow there is a bunch of ash down, my wife asked if I was going to pick some up and I say of course not. I go about another half mile and tell her I'll have to call you back I'm going to get some wood. :lol: I ended up with about a pick up bed full, there was a lot more but it was full of poison ivy and I'm very allergic/sensitive to it so I let it lay. On the other side of the road there was three tree's down, I knocked on the home owners door but they were not home so I left it alone.

    Not a huge score but I find it funny that I can't just drive by and leave it alone. After I loaded up the truck I called my wife and told her "I feel so alive" :lol: she said yeah we need to get you a help group, I said I do it's hearth.com :cheese:

    You can always use more inventory, and more exercise, so what is the problem?

    You are so lucky to have that knot and limb free hardwood. Looks like easy splitting.

    That looks like a pretty good score. What is it about this that's so addicting?

    How about heating your house for next to nothing?

    How about the feeling of accomplishment?

    How about satisfying the primal instinct to hunt/gather?

    It all sounds perfectly healthy to me! . . .And a nice score! BTW, if you did get into the poison, I found a decent product while down in PA called Zanfel. It seems to work well for me.

    I've been in South Texas since Saturday and just got home tonight. On my way home I seen the wood still in front of the house so I'm going to knock on their door again tomorrow to see what's up with it. I can't believe it's still there, people must not be interested in gathering during the summer. That's fine by me!
